Weekly Family Meal Plan #67

An incredibly yummy reader inspired family meal plan that’ll get you motivated and organised for dinner time in your house this week.

I’ve been in Sydney this week – you might have seen my rugged up videos on Insta stories, it was so cold! – but as you know I don’t like to disappoint when it comes to the weekly meal plan. This week’s family friendly meal plan comes courtesy of my reader Nicki G. I hope you enjoy it as much as I am enjoying being back in the sunny state! LOL.

MONDAY

Savoury Mince and Cauliflower Rice – cauliflower rice is such a simple, tasty and nutritious addition to a meal. I haven’t had it with savoury mince before, but it sounds delicious! This one will definitely be on my dinner table soon.

TUESDAY

Beef Sausages with Mash and Salad – Nicki served her sausages with sweet potato mash and a side salad. My kids always loved mash, so I often make sweet potato mash because it’s packed with so many vitamins and minerals – a great way to get good veggies into your kids!

WEDNESDAY

Chicken Maryland – A chicken maryland is a great budget-friendly cut of chicken which contains both the drumstick and the thigh. Nicki served her chicken with veggies and salad, but this chicken cut also lends itself to quick roasts and slow cooked meals too (like this one below).

THURSDAY

Braised Steak and Mash – Braised steak certainly makes for a hearty meal that the entire family can enjoy, and it’s very versatile too! Nicki served hers with onions and sweet potato mash, but it could also be served with hot chips, roast veggies, or even on toast.

FRIDAY

Chicken Burgers – what better way to kick off the weekend than with burgers! I like to use my Chicken and Vegetable Rissoles recipe to make my family’s burgers – it’s such an easy way to sneak a few veggies in there. Nicki served her chicken burgers on Keto friendly rolls.

SATURDAY

Pulled Pork with Pita – such a yummy meal for a cold Saturday night, and I’m always a big fan of recipes that allows me to use my slow cooker! Nicki made her meal paleo friendly by using paleo pita bread.

SUNDAY

Roast Chicken and Veggies – the perfect way to finish off the week! This recipe is a favourite of mine not simply because it tastes delicious, but because it uses only one dish – now that’s a super way to finish the week in my book.

BAKING

Banana Bread – I love toasted banana bread with melted butter and a cuppa on a cold day! This recipe of mine is super easy to make, and is a great way to use up those over-ripe bananas (TIP: pop over-ripe bananas in the freezer until you’re ready to use them in your cakes, bread or muffins).
